It will matter if the app requires a newer version of Windows, which is likely. Set it back to XP and see what happens.

Windows versions can be set on a per-app basis in winecfg. Add your solitaire game to the Applications tab, select it, and set the Windows version just for that game. Keep the default global setting as XP, because that works best for most apps.
